The Sound of Pointe Shoes Merging with Michael Gordon's 'Aftermath'
27th March 2014
Demis Volpi has created this new work for nearly 30 female dancers whose pointe shoes play a special role in the piece: the choreographer will explore their potential not only as an instrument of dance, but also in an acoustic and musical way. The shoes create a new soundscape with the sound of their movement merging with Michael Gordon’s music.
Gordon’s compositions have been featured prominently in the dance works of diverse choreographers: Emio Greco|PC, Wayne McGregor (for Stuttgart Ballet, Random Dance), Pina Bausch’s Tanztheater Wuppertal, Heinz Spoerli (for Zürich Ballet), Ashley Page (for The Royal Ballet and The Scottish Ballet) and Club Guy & Roni.
Following his recent production Krabat, Demis Volpi was appointed to Resident Choreographer of the Stuttgart Ballet. He was awarded the Deutscher Tanzpreis Zukunft prize in March 2014.
